How much do you know about “Science” tattoo removal?

I have seen many people who regret after getting tattoos. At first, it may be because they admired a word or liked a certain pattern or a certain person’s name.

It’s just that with the growth of age, these have become troubles. Enlisting in the army and employment are always restricted, so the idea of ​​tattooing came into being. Today we will talk about those things about getting tattoos.

The tattoo is to pierce the epidermis at a high speed and evenly with a tattoo needle, and the pigment is implanted into the dermis under the epidermis. The pigment is fixed to the epidermis to form a tattoo.

Pigment particles injected into the dermis by the tattoo gun do not disappear with cell renewal for a long time

The operating principle of tattoo removal is to apply a laser to the affected area to break the pigment particles into tiny fragments, which are excreted through skin scab removal, or by blood circulation and cell phagocytosis to complete pigment metabolism.

This method does not destroy the rest of the skin tissue and leaves no scars after surgery. It is currently the preferred method for treating tattoos.

With the rapid development of science and technology, there are more and more methods of tattoo removal. The most common tattoo removal methods on the market today are as follows:

1. Chemical corrosion method

Using a relatively dilute weak acid solution to cause superficial burns on the skin, the pigment will fall off with the necrotic tissue, and the tattoo pigment will be removed completely, but the remaining scars will be obvious.

2. Skin grinding method

The superficial layer of the skin is removed with a special high-speed rotating grinding wheel to achieve the purpose of removing pigment.

It is suitable for removing lighter tattoo patterns, and the effect of treating scars is obvious. The skin may be pigmented or lost after surgery. It is difficult to completely remove darker pigments and may leave scars.

3. Surgical excision

For deeper tattoo patterns, the above methods are often ineffective, and only surgical excision and suture can be considered, but scars may be left.

4. Laser removal method

Because the above three methods of tattoo removal are easy to leave scars and cause irreversible damage to the skin, laser tattoo removal is currently a more popular method.

Generally speaking, the lighter the tattoo pattern, the easier it is to wash off, and then the frequency will be less. In addition, black tattoos will definitely fall off more easily than colored tattoos. It takes about 1-3 times for the tattoo to be completely removed, and the length of treatment depends on many factors.

Warm reminder: Try not to touch the water within one week after the tattoo treatment. Touching the water will cause infection and cause certain damage to the skin.
